Christophobia in Egypt


The Coptic Christian community in Egypt traces its roots back to the Gospel author, Mark. But despite its 2,000-year presence in Egypt, this community has been under siege for quite some time by the Muslim majority. According to Open Doors, an organization devoted to serving persecuted Christians, Egypt ranks 17th on its "World Watch" list of the planet's persecutors of Christians.

If we had media figures who were interested in supplying the public with an informed, truthful picture of religious oppression, then "Christophobia," or something along these lines, would be a term springing from their lips exponentially more often than that of "Islamophobia."
